I am looking for something like a cigar box type box or some small box that would make a suitable purse for a 12 inch doll.
I have a dremel so can drill holes if needed.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I know Micheals sells little boxes, I dont know if they have any small enough to be doll purses though.

A few months ago I lived in a metropolitan area , I now live the middle of nowhere. Not only is there no Michaels store , there is no crafty store of any kind !!!! I find most things in hardware stores or online.
Luckily my best friend lives near a Michaels and a Hobby Lobby and anything you could want. I will have her look for me.

Thanks for the response!

If you can't find pre-made boxes, you could use pre-cut strips of balsa wood and build your own.  You can find them in the model-building sections of hobby stores.  People use them for kites and other things.  Lots of different sizes and configurations are available.

It would be pretty easy to cut the pieces and you could then just glue them together with wood glue.  Or heck, just whack off sections of thicker balsa strips, and pretend it's a cigar box.  If it's for a doll, it doesn't have to open or actually hold things, right?

I own power tools, and I'm not afraid to use them!

I would check the dollar store. I found some similar to the ones at Michaels, but much smaller in size. They may still be too large for a doll, however. I would also check art supply stores. The one by me sells canvases as small as 1.5" x 2.5", its not wood, but you could hinge two together to make a little bag
